1:30am
tier rate did i misquote that i miss stoke so once you reach over one million that first million is taxable. so correction. and then as i noted there's a small business under one million gross receipts is exemption in the gross receipts. the one is particularly for the business fee will increase in 2014 for all businesses and i think what i'd like for you to do is flip to page 2. where i see the charts. and so for 2014 to 2015 the base
1:31am
payroll there will be a new business fee and then two 15 the set business register fee will be under two schedules so businesses in schedule one >> yes. >> i have is question. is there any you type of outreach that's going to be done >> there will be and at this time, the controllers office is working on are developing plans for this and our outreach will happen after we go after june or
1:32am
july of 2013 because they're still developing things like the tax credits and how that will be applied. who you get into some of the larger entities there's bigger structures and that needs to be careful communicated so that when the time for outreach there's one package of information going out. so the tax and treasurers office have additional staffing for that >> commissioner reeling. >> so of a small business the gross receipt is less than 1
1:33am
million it's exemption. >> right the first million is not exemption so if you will look at page 2. the whole 2 million is taxable >> yeah, but it's at a different taxable rate. so if you look at that page once you reach over a million that million is a taxable minimum >> so for schedule one 1.75 percent of - the first million is at - the 5 hundred thousand is taxable at the 1 point percent tax rate. >> commissioner. >> what about the businesses
1:34am
that are a combination of the manufacturing and other businesses structure. >> right so going back to i think i think this is where we need to work this out. we're not going out and educating businesses right now. the likelihood you'll by looking at the bigger side of our business >> director i believe if more than your business is one second for it will be taxed at a different rate and i make everything i sell.
1:35am
so i'm making it and selling it. right but you're also whole sailing >> yeah, but wholesale and retail are in the same bracket. by definition the - so i look like a retailer but i'm a manufacturer if you proportion the dollars >> well, is your margin bigger than air manufacturing costs it will be interesting to find out how they find this.
1:36am
>> look by definition your whole sailing it and selling it. >> not every manufacture will have a manufacturer presence. >> yeah, so this is - anyway pointing out. >> again we're not going out and promoting this yet base we're still talking about this and there will be an awe apportionment but they'll be some guidelines on.
1:37am
>> i have a question. saying there is a small business exemption for gross receipts less than one million but on the second page it shows the gross rates is from zero to one million i'm confused >> once i makeover a million then your taxed on that million but as long as your taxed - the first million is you're paying taxes on but if you're not making one million you're not taxed. >> as you keep going up the
1:38am
tier the one million is taxed on the section tier the taxable amount the tiers remain the same. prevents stepping so when i cross a boundary and the rate goes up or down there's no incontinuity. >> this goes in effect in 2014. there is one business who wants to hire but basically they'd have to wait until 2014 and there is a schedule the phase in
1:39am
schedule will still have 2014 is 10 percent is gross receipts the remaining will be payroll tax. the - if they're under $500 in pay role they may be able to apply the pay role exemption tax. >> there probably are some cases where your taxes will be greater than but if you're hiring people you're going to get it in the payroll see or the - you're going to pay the taxes
1:40am
in the year 2014 but if you want to make a determination if you wait i'll be able to avoid this. you'd want to know they might decide oh, the new tax is so moo much better for me, i think i'll wait. this is interesting conversation >> right so neo fourteen and neo fourteen it keeps on going up.
1:41am
2017, 75 percent gross receipts payroll tax and so forth >> so that is the phase in period. but remember we already phased in the mayors suggestion >> so in this information i know you say that they're working on it with the tax collectors office, can we put this on the website to educate? at least the schedule. as i look at this thing there is a gross receipt rates and the phase in and as a business owner i'd like to know this >> so for the members of the

1:44am
program come later and is well, you should have known. >> maybe we can come up with a straight online calculator but this period 2014 and up sees complicated to me. >> which is why it is good for us as a commission that we're having this discussion so that you have the abilility to think and we're going to work with other departments on this. great. my comments are meant to be critical but educational. we're going to be pulling out
1:45am
hair out for a few years >> once we go to all gross receipts that will be another story but the phase in will be tough. >> how can we minimize this to help understand this complicated process. >> well, certainly me and whoever else - well, what other businesses do we have? the restaurant business. and take us through that process so we can anticipate some of the questions >> and i'll have a cigarette way into this we can have a more
1:46am
robust discussion and i'll be meeting with the president adams to outline the retreat and we he can think about having a more robust discussion on this at the retreat. >> one thing is what potential hybrids are on here. f certain restaurants sell and package their own sauces that could be another hybrids. and this other discussion how do we do the other sections.
1:47am
and this lady has a restaurant so she'll have some thoughts about that >> and other restaurants have entertainment. >> so, now we have a module of hybrids to be considered. >> great thank you so much for that. >> thank you. >> so that was our beginning overview and working on this and we have a year ahead have to start helping businesses transition into this. >> that's the key it's a year. is clock is starting to tick now. this is going to be a yearlong
